Full Description
I cover everything from the just the ceremony right through to the full day. I know we'd all like different things from our Big day and for the majority budget is the main thing. With that in mind i have made my packages so that even on the smallest package you, the Newly Wed couple to be, get all the images without any sneaky price afterwards to get the rest of your photo's. A Disc, Presentation Case, Prints, Album, and use of my Secure Online Gallery so that you can share your photo's with friends and family around the world who couldn't make it to the day. And I offer an interest free payment plan so you can spready the cost of your day so its easier for you both :) Some of my packages come with a Pre-Wedding Shoot for free. I have found over the years I enjoy the more natural shots. I still give you all the Posed ones you expect. But once they are done i work more on the natural ones and they always give amazing results :) And to make sure you are both ta ease with everything, I take you both to the venue and anywhere else you'll be going on the day (Hairdressers, Make up) a few weeks before the Wedding and have a look around and start planning the shots to make sure you both know what will be happening and so we can get the very best from the venue and for you both :) What ever you want from your day and what ever your budget may be, get in touch for a free chat. I look forward ot hearing from you :)

Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Karl
I have done well over 300 Weddings. And by the end of every one of them I have gained at least 2 more friends. Your day is more than a job to me. My own Wedding was by the far the best day of my life and I want each and every one of you to feel the same about your day, and for the Wedding photo's to show that and all the intricacies of the day So your photo's make you both smile every time you look at them. That's what YOUR day means to me, that's why i ask you get in touch :)

Amazing
So after a difficult few months we had our day on 26th May and it was perfect! My son had chicken pox just before the wedding and my daughter was grumpy and came out in spots just after the wedding but it was still perfect. There is no point stressing over the little things. If something is going to go wrong it will. The most important thing is you get to marry your best friend. Everyone is right, the day flies by, so take some time together and soak it all in because it will be amazing! I can not recommend Karl from Karl's Photography Centre enough!

"..His work brought tears to our eyes.."
Would like to say Karl is an amazing kind and thoughtful talented man! Not only was he snapping away with his camera he was always willing to lend a helping hand and calm you down with nerves. Some photographers just get in the way. Karl was there making us laugh and always very polite. His work brought tears to our eyes helping us remember the best day of our lives!! We can not thank you enough and would definitely highly recommend him to everyone!!

Winter Wedding
Where to start …. Firstly got to say What a lovely , patient , friendly man ! Professional , polite, the works ! I was a bride trying to deal with everything. I came across Karl on Facebook. As u can imagine, there were hundreds of photographers. but I liked his sketch profile pic. So I hit his link AND NEVER LOOKED BACK ! Even tho he wasn’t local to us and I’m always a bit dubious about hire and buying from Facebook I’m so glad I did!!!! From first contact I knew he was magic. and ?? the photos that came back very quickly I may add, were AMAZING!!!! (To say the least. ). We had a few hiccups regarding our wedding date and he was beyond brilliant, understood our dilemma and put one panicky bride at complete ease. His work is outstanding ! We all had about 2 hours sleep night before wedding but you WOULDNT know it from his amazing light and angle shots (plus a tiny bit of editing maybe. ). His ideas worked so well, We love all 900 photos!!! He listens to you completely and took EVERY shot we had wanted and discussed before the big day. All the guests loved him and felt at ease having their pictures took. And are VERY VERY happy with the photos. So yh, this is 1 bride and groom from Warwickshire that say … …“BOOK HIM BOOK HIM BOOK HIM “. You WONT be disappointed!

FAQ
(10)

What is your most memorable wedding?

Wentworth House in Rotherham. Amazing couple, beautiful building and tons of history!!!!

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Funny (as they get the best smiles back and breaks tensions), approachable, creative, flexible, determined and an eye for details :)

What about your business are you most proud of?

I have built my business both with my camera work and with my personality and warmth. Being able to work with so many types of personality to get the best from them is what I'm proud of :)

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Ask as many questions as possible!!!!!!! there are far too many people who think Weddings are easy money. They want to make a quick few quid and dont care that it's the Biggest day of your lives. Ask as many questions as possible. If you dont understand the answer, then get them to clarify it. Dont let them bamboozle you. Always go with a Professional for all your Wedding bits, Cake, Flowers, Car, Suits etc

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

Custom made cuff links that had photo's of the Groom's Mum and the baby they lost in them. Truly beautiful and had SO much meaning to them both.

Describe your typical process with a couple.

I have the initial meeting with you both, from there assuming you book. I get the paperwork sorted and start getting to know you both through different conversations. Then we arrange meetings and Pre Wedding shoot and Wedding Walk Throughs. I go out of my way to make sure you're both as relaxed with me as possible so you can focus entirely on your day :)

What is the No. 1 photo that you think every couple should take?

"Every couple should take" so that ISNT taken by your photographer. Its got to be the Mr & Mrs Selfie lol Get the Wedding rings in there and the dress and the suit and go for it lol

What is the most original photo you’ve been asked to take at a wedding?

Of of the couple's I did a Wedding for, the Groom was a competition cyclist so I arranged with the Bride's consent for the group he rides with to ride past the Bride and Groom and do their own version of the Confetti throw. It looked fantastic and really made their day and was a total surprise for the Groom!!!

What do you recommend for a rainy day wedding?

You can't help the weather, so grab so your Wellies and an Brolly and make the most of it. Its not perfect but they do make for great photo's and most of all dont let it ruin your day. You can always put your shoes on in the church :)

Describe how you got into photography.

Apprentice trained and fell in love with Weddings from there. We all know how they go. They get ready, get married and have a dance in the evening. But its all the excitement and nerves and little moments of magic that make each Wedding special :)
